INFORMATION BULLETIN - Building Permits for Cannabis Production

  

 

Building Permits for Cannabis Production

In light of the recent changes to the Agricultural Land Commission Act and Regulations regarding production of cannabis within the Agricultural Land Reserve, the Regional District of North Okanagan drafted a Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw (Bylaw No. 2820, 2019) which received First Reading on May 22, 2019 and the Township of Spallumcheen drafted a Zoning Text Amendment Bylaw (Bylaw No. 1986, 2019) which is on the June 3, 2019 Council agenda for First Reading.

Both Bylaws propose to limit the size of concrete floored cannabis production facilities on lands in the ALR. As a result of these bylaws, proponents of facilities larger than what is proposed may not be able to obtain approvals from local governments.

Please contact Planning and Building Staff at the Regional District of North Okanagan prior to submitting a Building Permit application for a cannabis production facility within the Electoral Areas or the Township of Spallumcheen.
